into that as I go along I'm also using the little metal words they have spring bunny and welcome in this package I'm also using the wood craft cubes some ribbon as well as some paint and a scrap piece of wood to start off with I am using a Waverly's chalk paint in elephant you can pick it up at Walmart I am painting at the base or the scrap piece of wood now what's great about this is you can choose any color that you want to that goes with your scheme of colors you don't have to choose my colors now my scrap piece of wood is 17 inches long and the reason why I am going with a 17 inches is because I will be using all five of my rabbits you could actually do it probably with 16 inches as well give or take it depends on how much you want to overlap your bunnies now I'm going in with five of the bunnies and that's because my family is there are five of us and so I'm representing my family in bunnies and that's what I chose to do so if you wanted to represent your family and there were three of you or four of you or seven of you you could absolutely do something like this so this could be such a very personal way of doing it and you'll see that I personalize it even more as I go along into this project so I'm going in with a white acrylic paint in order to give my bunnies a coat I am gonna be painting the front in the back but once I got into this I realized I can't leave the whole on their ear that's not gonna look very good in...

the finished product so I did go in with my wood filler I filled it in once that dried I did sand it down so it would be nice and flat and then I went back in with a white acrylic paint again and I did paint both the front and the back of the bunnies once that completely dried then I could go in and I use some wood glue in order to attach the little wood cubes to the back once that wood glue set up Android I could then go in with the white acrylic paint onto the wood wood cube and paint those now I did not paint those before because there are small pieces and they're hard to hold and I did not want to try to paint those I just knew they would be so much easier to paint if I had something else to hold on to and so I chose to do it this way after the paint had completely dried now is time for me to go ahead and a place of my bunnies onto my scrap wood and I went ahead and I staggered my bunny so I put three in the front and two in the back and it's just the way I chose to do it again this is such a personal thing just have fun with it once I had that on there I went in with some wood glue so that that could secure those down you could hot glue them on I just prefer to use wood glue with wood when that was dry I did decide to embellish them and I put a little black ribbon bow ties for the boys and that little gingham little hair bows a further girl so we have three boys in the family and two girls in my family and so that is how I personalized them now once I had that on...

and once I did that this was completely done and I think this is absolutely adorable I love how you can customize it customize this so that it can fit your family I think it is so cute next project I am going to be using another one of those wooden bunnies so grab one before you use it for that first project some black felt as well as one of those gray and white buffalo check baby blankets that you can pick up at

Dollar

Tree

start off with I'm just taking my baby blanket and I'm folding it in half in order to line it up the way that I want it I'm just using the grid or the buffalo check and then lining those up too and matching those up now to cut it I am going in with a straight edge ruler that is used for like quilting and then my rotary cutter if you've been around then you know this is my absolute favorite rotary cutter I love the handle on this I can't seem to use a rotary cutter that has like a straight handle I love that this has just that little bit of a curve so to get the blanket ready I'm actually trimming all four sides so that I have nice clean straight edges I'm creating a rectangle so that I can make a bolster pillow and I just want nice clean edges it's I'm not measuring that or anything I just want to make sure that I have straight edges on all four sides that my opposing opposite sides are equal with one...
another other than that that is all you need and once that is done and I have two pieces that are identical they are ready to for me to start putting the hello together so I've decided that I'm actually gonna hot glue it using a fabric glue but you can of course use your sewing machine so for this I'm exactly like if you were gonna sew it you're gonna take your two top edge top pieces and you're going to face them towards each other and then you're just gonna take your hot glue around the edges and because it is hot glue you're gonna do a section and then fold it over do a section and fold it over but it moves super quickly once you get to the bottom side of it I went ahead and I left a section open a little bit larger than my hand or then I didn't close it off because I want to make sure that I of course can still stuff it with the batting and we will fix that in just a little bit after I had the hot glue set up I went ahead and I turned the pillow out by stuffing my hands in and making sure I poked out those corners now it's time for me to go ahead and create my bunny so I took my little wooden bunny and I traced it with just like a little chalk marker and then I did that three times and cut out the bunny and I went in with that exact same fabric glue and I glued down my bunnies and then I decided to go ahead and give him a little pom-pom Telles I think that makes it so cute now I had an old pillow lying around that I could use the...
batting in order to stuff it but you could stuff it with whatever you want once your pillow is all stuff then you just go in and fold under your edges and finish it off with hot glue or if you would like to go ahead and sew it this would be the time I think this pillow is absolutely darling and I adore it so this next project is so simple yet it isn't so cute so I already have this box but there are a couple of

Dollar

options of course that you can absolutely use so there's a mom's bathroom wash brush and floss it is the exact same size as the box it just doesn't have the backing that the box has but it is the same size now the 8 by 10 canvas is a little bit longer than the box but it is the same width so you do have a couple options or you may already have something that line around your house Here I am also using another one of those that little wooden bunnies and a page from a book is picked I picked up at

Dollar

Tree

and I like to use it for various

crafts

I have some Mod Podge some paint and a couple of paintbrushes as well as the metal word funny to start off with I am just taking some Mod Podge onto the funny I like to add a thin coat onto that and then I'm just placing that the paper or the page from the book on there and smoothing that out now I don't like to trim this up before I actually like to trim it up after it's the Mod Podge is set and dried and I do that with some sandpaper and you'll see that and then I go ahead and with...
this is blue this blue is from Waverly it's called egg ghave it's a beautiful blue and that is what I'm painting that the word and bunny with and I actually end up giving it two coats so once the Mod Podge has completely dried now I go in with a sixty grit sandpaper and I am sanding away from the edges of the paper down and this is how I get the paper off this is how you get a beautiful trend it makes it look like the paper was designed to be on the sunny or whatever it is that you're doing it gives it the most perfect cut better than if you were to like trace out the bunny and cut it I absolutely love doing it this way everything is ready now it is time to attach my bunny my bunny so to attach the wood bunny I am going in with hot glue to do that fit to attach the metal bunny I am going in with superglue sometimes hot glue and metal don't seem to mesh up as well and so the superglue will do a better job of making sure that it stays down the only need the tiniest amount well I am making sure that you are getting a lot of mileage out of this little bunny but I absolutely love this time I think it is so cute it's really simple to do I love the little pop of blue it's one of my favorite colors for spring and

Easter

and I hope that you love the sign as well so for this project I am creating a garland I absolutely love decorating with Garland's and so I went ahead and I grabbed some of the carrot ornaments I also grabbed some Buffalo check paper I...
get that Hobby Lobby it's always four for a

dollar

Mod Podge I have some paint I have some chalking here but you could also use some acrylic paint I have the white twine that you get in the automotive section I also have some orange in it you will see that I change that when I have a little hiccup later on to start off with I just grab the Waverley chalk paint in ink and I'm painting all the tops of the carrots in the black paint now I'm just making sure that I covered the entire top of the carrot and I don't need to paint any further than that because I will be using the paper for the bottom half of the carrot so I went ahead and I just trimmed out my paper quickly to give me enough for each of my carrots now I am choosing it here to go ahead and do it ten carrots there are five in each pack I am covering a garland that will go armed on my mantle and it's rather large if you are gonna do a garland on a small area you would not need that or if you wanted to go in a larger area of course you could do that as well I was able to cover all ten carrots with one piece of paper so once all my paper was trimmed out now I could apply it to the bottom half of my carrot so I just took my thin coat of Mod Podge and brushed that onto the bottom as each one of my carrots and I just went one at a time so I would apply a thin coat of Mod Podge clay my paper on and then I would smooth it out and then I would move on and I would do that to the next carrot once all of my...
carrots were completely dried then I went in with my sixty grit sand paper and I sand it again away from the paper down away from the carrot to get the paper off it really does make the most beautiful seamless I don't even know if I can explain it you have to kind of check it out for yourself because it gives you that perfect edge better than if you were to trace it and glue it on trust me if you haven't tried this technique I hope that you will give it a try you'll absolutely love the results so here is where I hit my little hiccup so I went in with the orange twine and when it to apply it and I only had enough to do five with just this one spool of twine and I did not have a second spool and I went to the store they didn't have it that was fine but I did have some orange raffia thanks to my friend Frances for help reminding me to try the orange raffia and guess what I liked it better I think it looks so much better it matches my other decor better I am so glad that this was a happy hiccup in order to hang the garland all you're gonna do is take some twine thread it through the hole that's already on the carrots and tie a knot and then you're gonna thread those through a larger piece and then hang it wherever you like to display your garland here I have it on my mantel and I've combined it with the cute little bunny garland that I created last year and I love these two together if you missed the video where I shared this bunny garland I just...
did a video of my top 10 favorite DIYs from last year I will link that video again for you at the end of this video so that you can check it out for this last project I have a can of spray paint I have one of those little crap bunnies a six thousand and a mesh wire basket to start off with I'm just taking a pair of pliers and pulling that tiny little metal part out of the bunny's head you just have to pull straight out it comes out super easy I then took a 220 grit sandpaper so just a really fine sandpaper and I sanded any of the rough spots just to make sure that my bedding was nice and smooth this is really meant more for a kid crack and so some of the areas might be a little bit rougher and I wanted him to just look a little nicer so I went in with my 86,000 on the bottom of the bunny but then I also went in with some hot glue I flipped over the basket and I really went and underneath it so that the hot glue would also really help secure this while the e6000 was sitting up and that's because the basket has a little bit more flexibility and get that it's not a hard surface and I wanted to make sure that the bunny would adhere to the basket and have a really good hold once the glue set up I went ahead and I gave it a good coat of spray paint I wanted the whites to match and that is why I went ahead and spray painted and of course you can do it in a color of your choice but that is all you needed to do this I love this is a super easy cloche I'm sure...
someone will correct me if I said that wrong now all I did was take a decorative plate that I had actually I got this at a thrift store but it is a Pioneer Woman plate that it is sitting on top that you can get that at Walmart or you can drive grab one from
